Top Sanctions Check FAQ

What Sanctions data and watch lists are searched?

Over 1500 sanctions, watch lists and Politically Exposed Persons (PEPs) are searched in over 190 countries. These will include lists issues by governments like the HM Treasury, financial regulators like the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) and law enforcement, like the FBI.

What information is returned after a Sanctions check?

When a Sanctions check is complete, you will receive the following details (if they are available):

  • Name of issuing entity and country
  • A brief description of the sanction/action taken
  • The name of the person that matched the data
What happens if my candidate has a common name in a Sanctions check?

Unfortunately, in this case, there is a chance of receiving false positive results as the system used only searches by name. Where the article contains information of the individual concerned which differs to your candidate such as a date of birth or age, we will categorise those matches as 'qualified out' where possible.

How does perform Sanctions checks?

We use a market leading compliance system which checks databases of sanctioned, restricted, prohibited and high-risk individuals. These could be known as money launderers, fraudsters and terrorists issued by financial regulators, government agencies and law enforcement bodies. Searches can also made against lists of Politically Exposed Persons (PEPs).
